"I used to use the Hamburger Helpers but desided it was cheaper to go this way with it. It is better and warms up easier."

  1. I sauteed the rice before adding everything else. I did add about 1/4 a cup more water & it turned out perfectly. For those of you who don't cook rice, make sure you cover it while cooking. VERY easy and nice work night meal.
  2. I didn't know that Rice Oriental had been discontinued until I stumbled upon this recipe. How sad! But I'm happy to report that this will do as a substitute! I had to add about 3 cups of water to give the rice ample time to cook. Still had a few crunchy ones, but I'll adjust accordingly next time. I would suggest covering this while cooking. Oh, and NO mushrooms! Thanks!!!
  3. I was sad when GM discontinued this favorite. I made the recipe a bit differet: 2 lbs ground beef, 2 packets onion soup mix, 3 c. water, 3 tb soy sauce, 1.5 c rice, no mushrooms. Turned out wonderfully!!
  4. Great recipe. Used to use the HH version. I add a can of Asian veggies and garnish with unsalted cashews and pickled ginger.
  5. I thought this was actually better than the original. Prepared exactly as written, although to suit our personal tastes I will add quite a bit more garlic in the future. Thank you so much for sharing this!


  1. Try adding some water chestnuts to it also, very yummy
  2. I made this tonight. I am rating this a 4 because I made so many changes to it. We really like it with the changes I made. I added sliced mushrooms, carrots and celery to the onion. I also used garlic, ground ginger, pepper and broth instead of the water. It added more flavor that way. I didn't use the onion soup mix. We ended up putting duck sauce on the top and that made it really good. Thanks!!
  3. oops, I forgot to add to my review, that I used veggie crumbles instead of beef to make it a vegetarian dish.


I do not think I have a pet peeve. I think people are different for reasons that are not known to us. We just have to get along. I always look for the good in people and not the things I do not like.
